Key Audit Matters

4. Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone financial statements for the financial yearended March 31 2019. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of thestandalone financial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we donot provide a separate opinion on these matters.

Key Audit Matter How the Key Audit Matter was addressed in our audit
Refer to note 2.f 'Inventories' to the standalone financial statements. The total value of inventory as of March 312019 amounted to Rs. 1075 lakhs representing 12.34% of the total assets (2018: 996 Lakhs 9.96% of the total assets). Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realisable value on FIFO basis . The valuation of inventory is dependent on establishing appropriate valuation controls. We focused on this area as Management judgement is applied to estimate the appropriate write-down for obsolete inventories and the indirect production costs manually capitalised as inventory. These judgements are key elements in the valuation of inventories. We have performed the following principal audit procedures in relation to Inventory valuation:
• We tested relevant internal controls that the Company uses to ensure proper valuation of inventory including the procedures for write-down of obsolete inventory and the indirect production costs manually capitalised as inventory.
• We tested the adequacy of write-downs for excess and/or obsolete inventory by verifying future demand data historical usage historical accuracy of write-downs and management's plans to utilise the inventory.
• We evaluated the significant judgements and estimates made by Management in applying Company's accounting policy in relation to indirect production costs.
• We assessed the Company's disclosures in the financial statements in respect of inventory.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the standalone Financial Statements

9. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith Standards on Auditing will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if individuallyor in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisionsof users taken on the basis of these standalone financial statements.

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalonefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatementresulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involvecollusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internalcontrol.

• Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i)of the act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company hasadequate internal financial controls system in place and the operating effectiveness ofsuch controls.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basisof accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existsWe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe standalone financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify ouropinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of ourauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern and

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalonefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financialstatements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

13.
